Please tell me how you do this. I recently lost one of my begonias "dead". :-(

@ripjuju Essentially you're cutting the leaf into sections..the goal is to have the main midrib of the leaf or the base of the cutting contacting soil. Once that happens the cutting will produce a callus where roots will form..they need to be misted a few times a day.
